New Commander HD Wheel From Colson Caster Offers Resiliant Design For Ultra Heavy Loads

Colson Caster Corporation, the world’s leading manufacturer of standard and custom application caster and wheel products, has announced its newest line of heavy duty wheels for mass distribution: the Commander HD. The innovative wheel is designed for superior performance in some of the most abusive applications and environments where high-load requirements and impact resistance are a must.

“As with all of our wheel products, the new Commander HD wheel is backed by Colson’s industry leading, three-year warranty. The wheels were designed, engineered and rigorously tested to insure the quality, performance and competitiveness that we require,” said Charles Harris, testing and quality manager for Colson Group USA. “Our customers asked for an extremely heavy-duty wheel alternative that protects floors
and holds up to corrosive environments, and the Commander wheel is that product.” Once again, our customer input has served as momentum for a new product.”

The Commander HD wheel is constructed of a high impact polymer, Nylatron®. The wheels are machined, not injection molded, which provides superior resilience and impact strength. In addition, the special polymer blend resists moisture and most chemicals making it suitable for corrosive environments. The wheel features a slightly crowned tread profile, rolls easily and provides better floor protection than other high
capacity wheels, such as steel, iron or phenolic. Applications for the new wheel include, die carts, engine hoists, ground support equipment and much more.

The new Commander HD wheel is available now in 4”, 5” 6” and 8” diameters, each with a 2” tread width. The wheel is also available with a 3” tread width for 8” and 10” sizes. Capacities for each wheel range from an impressive 2,000 lbs to 7,200 lbs each.
